While Trevor Bruttenholm and Varvara, head of the Soviet paranormal department, were investigating what is left of Project Vampir Sturm, Baron Konig appears before them and threatens Prof. Bruttenholm. Konig was furious about the abuse of Vladimir Giurescu and his wives that were captured by the Nazis; in which he swore that all men will pay for their abuse. Varvara decides she has heard enough, and forces the vampire to flee.[1]

In 1947, Baron Konig kept his promise in which he slaughtered a train car full of S.S. officers, which proves to be one in a larger list of Nazi killings. In response Bruttenholm send a team of four men to investigate a lead on Konig, a party he threw in the summer of 1771.[3]

Konig attended an annual gathering of vampires and witches to invoke the Goddess Hecate. A human in their company, B.P.R.D. agent Simon Anders, reveals the attending audience about Konig's killings, and that because of this some people are becoming aware about vampires. The vampires had planned to stay in hiding until humanity had forgotten how to fight them, which Konig's actions infuriate many of the vampires present. Although he argued that they are being shortsighted and attempted to rally them to his cause; however, they instead beaten him before finally killing him by slitting his throat, causing Konig to crumble into dust.[4]
